Pregnancy is very intimate and personal to each individual woman. The experiences are different, the symptoms are different, emotional are different etc. There are so many women who provide pregnancy advice and tell you all about their awful pregnancy experience (just take it with a grain of salt). It is also okay, to kindly decline hearing any negative pregnancy experiences.
Second trimester was a breeze! I felt like myself again. Of course, there were occasional days where I felt lethargic, but that just comes with the territory. Overall, my energy was up, my appetite came back and I was able to work out daily.
Happy New Year!! I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays, I sure did! My family and I were all in Raleigh at the Rooks’ estate. We ate good, played games, exchanged gifts and enjoyed each other’s company. My mom bought these super cute shirts for Christmas. I knew they would be perfect for an impromptu photoshoot.
We had an amazing time in Punta Cana! The staff was friendly, generous, helpful and extremely pleasant. Hearing stories from the native Dominican people were so heart felt and in some instances very relatable.
My honey and I went to visit my sister, brother (I don't say brother-in-law) over the weekend in Raleigh, NC. They are legit the best host ever! They always have fun things to do and takes us to the best eateries.
Seven days postpartum! It’s amazing what a women’s body is capable of. I had a natural delivery and my son was 8.3 lbs! He was worth all 17 hours of labor. 👼🏽💙 #postpartumbody #newborn #newbornbaby #motherhood #momlife
I did my big chop in the Fall of 2014. I didn’t know what I was doing, what products I needed to use, what hairstyles would work, the maintenance and time I would need to put in... there was so much uncertainty. I slowly, became more familiar with my hair texture and porosity. I stopped putting heat on my hair weekly, I ate a clean balanced diet, I trimmed my ends regularly, I did low maintenance protective styles that would last several days. My hair started to respond positively and that translated into growth.
Unfortunately, there is no special pill or potion. I recommend taking time to really understand what your hair needs. This process is trial and error and not the same for any two people. ✨
Now, as a professional hairstylist, I understand hair growth on a more scientific level. I focus on healthy hair and scalp. 🍃🌱🍃 #naturalhair #naturalhairgoals #amazingnaturalhair #journey #growth #longblackhair #naturalchixs #naturalista #hairstylist #knoxvillestylist
